"We do not inherit the Earth from our ancestors; we borrow it from our children"
Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
Caring for the environment is of fundamental importance for Perrotton. The company has always been keen to operate in ways that respect the environment and limit its impacts.
- 0 emissions of fine particles: a pilot site in France
- Treatment and recycling of swarf, chips and oils
- ISO 14001 certification
Our objective: to continue to develop our activities in ways that respect and preserve the environmentTo optimise our control of the impact of our activities on the environment, we have adhered to an environmental policy since March 1999 and have been ISO 14001 certified since September 2009. Our objectives are as follows:
- Mitigation of pollution... of the soil, subsoil and air: several dedicated facilities prevent the release of chemical fluids into the natural environment. We have invested in efficient aspiration units that are effective on fine particles (PM2.5 to PM10). Our investments help to limit the concentration of airborne pollutants, which is one of the main goals of the Arve Valley atmospheric protection plan.
- Optimal use of natural resources: … by enhancing the energy efficiency of our equipment and by implementing strict waste management practices (selective sorting, industrial waste…). To achieve this objective, we ensure that every member of personnel receives training to make them aware of our environmental commitments since it is critical that everyone plays their part.
